`Firewall' puts Harrison Ford in the driver's seat, again

Review B-

February 10, 2006|By MICHAEL SRAGOW | MICHAEL SRAGOW,SUN MOVIE CRITIC

One more time, father knows best - or at least hits the hardest, especially with the pitcher end of a blender - in the fast and furious Firewall.

As Jack Stanfield, Harrison Ford again gets to reveal the mettle behind a white-collar professional and devoted husband, as he did in The Fugitive and Air Force One and his Tom Clancy adventures a decade ago. Ford's latest embattled good guy, a computer security V.P. for a Seattle-based bank, displays as much gumption and bare-knuckled power as his surgeon, president and CIA man.

Firewall (Warner Bros.) Starring Harrison Ford, Virginia Madsen, Paul Bettany. Directed by Richard Loncraine. Rated R. Time 106 minutes.
